Sure, "embed" them into one "container" object. That can be any  
object, like a Rectangle, or an Ellipse may look nice, or just make  
it transparent.

Make a Rectangle. Draw the fat line on top of it. From the Line's  
halo menu choose "embed into ... Rectangle". Now when grabbing the  
rectangle, the line moves with it. Then make a script like "Line  
turnBy: 30. Rectangle include: Line's copy." and you're fine to go.
